Security camera catches woman stealing package from front doorstep

PHOENIX - Police will soon have videotape of a woman caught stealing a package from the front doorstep of a Phoenix home.

"She acted like she knew what she was doing and was very calm about it," said homeowner Mike McGanahan.

He told us the theft happened on Sept. 20 at his home in north Phoenix near 18th Street and Bethany Home Road. He was away at work and his wife was home in the back. 

They had been expecting a package of gourmet coffee to arrive at their home but never got it.

Then they looked at videotape from their security camera out front. 

A few hours after the package was delivered, you see a white 4-door car stop out front and a woman waltzes up to the door, grabs it, and drives off into the sunset.

"It wasn't what I expected to see," said McGanahan. He put up the camera the last time someone tried to mess with his home.

McGanahan and his wife filled out a police report and are ready to hand the video over to police when they ask for it.

"It's not the crime of the century, but we would like to catch her and bring her to justice," he said.
